Customer Question
I have just purchases...

I have just purchases a c88 printer from Amazon.When i tried to install a driver there is no such thing for a mac os x 10.13.3 high sierra. It looks as if I will need to send it back. Can you tell me which epson printers are compatable with this mac?

Technician's Assistant: How are you connecting to your C88: wirelessly or by USB?

USB

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the printer driver software?

Since this is a new purchase I tried to add the driver today.Apple does not show ant driver avaiable and I talked by phone with a tech and she said that there werw none avaiable

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I would very much like to know what printers Epson has that are compatible with the Mac high Sierra

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Can you tell me more about your printing needs? Are you typically doing documents? Photos?

Thank you for the info.

The C88 is a very old (2002) model printer, primarily designed for photos, but as you've already experienced it is not compatible with newer computers and operating systems.

If looking for a replacement, I’d recommend any of the Epson workforce series printers. They tend to be very reliable, are easy to set up and use, have good print quality, and reasonably priced ink. Example: http://amzn.to/2wPdNRJ or http://amzn.to/2hQLirU

Note that these, like all consumer grade inkjet printers, are designed to be low cost and are essentially disposable after a few years, subsidized by the high cost of ink cartridges. If you wish to have a better quality and longer lasting printer, that comes with years worth of ink up front, consider the Epson ecotank models instead: http://amzn.to/1PpOj0C

Alternately, for a more business/commercial grade product that will be rated for a 5 year life, consider a laser printer. Lasers cost more up front also, but a toner cartridge can last for thousands of pages. A black only all in one laser is around $125: http://amzn.to/2fdn5PG

while a color model is about twice that: http://amzn.to/1n4I7Q5
